If The Motion Of The Earth Were Circular

Posted in quotes, religion by amoslanka on November 25, 2008

If the motion of the earth were circular, it would be violent and contrary to nature, and could not be eternal, since, nothing violent is eternal. It follows, therefore the earth is not moved with a circular motion.
Thomas Aquinas

Let us not forget our universal fallibility.
